High-Frequency

High-frequency is a skin treatment which can be applied directly or indirectly to the skin of the face or body to stimulate, disinfect and heal the skin. 

How does a High-Frequency treatment chemically take effect ? 

The high-frequency current generates warmth in the skin and stimulates the nerve endings.

This in turn leads to increased blood circulation and metabolism in the area which encourages healthy cell function and promotes skin healing.  A high-frequency current is an electrical current which moves backwards and forwards at a very high speed, this is defined as an alternating current.

The rapid back and forth of current movement creates high-frequency vibrations over the skin's surface resulting in a heating and stimulating effect.  

What is the difference between Direct and Indirect High-Frequency?

Am I suitable for Direct High-Frequency or Indirect High-Frequency? 

During a direct high-frequency treatment the therapist places a high-frequency electrode into contact with the client's skin, whereas during an indirect high-frequency treatment the client holds the electrode while the therapist treats the client's skin. This contact allows the current to transfer between the therapist's hands and the client's skin. The choice of application is dependent upon the client's skin type and the desired effect the client wishes to obtain following a treatment.  

General effects of Indirect High-Frequency 

Direct High-Frequency is used to treat oily skin, mild acne or dry skin.

Indirect High-Frequency is suitable for treatment of dry or dehydrated skin, to implement a tightening effect as to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to improve the overall appearance of the skin. 

General effects of Direct High-Frequency 

  • increases activity of sebaceous and sudoriferous glands

  • improves blood circulation thereby nourishing the skin

  • improves lymphatic circulation thus increasing the elimination of waste products. 

  • increases blood circulation

  • increases lymph circulation

  • increases metabolism in the applied area

  • stimulates the superficial nerve endings

  • produces a germicidal action on the surface of the skin
